Danny K. - San Francisco.

"When I finally met Dr. Blasko, my foot had been broken for 6 weeks without treatment. The fracture site had spread apart to a point at which bone repair was physically impossible. With patience, diligence, and careful instruction, Dr. Blasko and her team got my foot to heal, and today I had the privilege of watering my garden for the first time in over 5 months. Dr. Blasko is a miracle worker!

Playa C. - Lafayette, CA

Dr. Blasko treated my toenail fungus with the new FDA approved Cutera laser. She is SO thorough and provides the most complete, understandable information regarding why/how one gets fungus, and how to treat and manage it. Dr. Blasko has a great sense of humor and provides memorable after-care instructions in a way that makes you feel like she really cares about you.

Heidi H. - SoMa, San Francisco

Dr. Blasko is the most thorough, kind, informative doctor I have ever seen. I was distraught & overwhelmed when I came to her with what seemed like an incurable situation. She got me on a regiment that was easy to sustain & in less than a year I was cured. Unlike many doctors I've seen in the past, she not only treats your problem, but helps you understand the cause of it & how to eradicate the source. She is a real gem!

Foot/Ankle Injuries

Many of our patients present with foot or ankle injuries. These injuries could be the result of simply tripping on the stairs, stepping on a foreign object while barefoot or from playing their favorite sports activity. At our practice we treat a wide variety of foot and ankle injuries which can be very painful and disabling, including foot and ankle fractures, ankle sprains, and tendon problems.

If you have injured your foot or ankle, be sure to visit our office for treatment - and in the meantime, remember RICE: Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation.

As podiatrists, we are specially trained to treat foot and ankle injuries with the latest treatment modalities and best outcomes. We can often see you immediately on the same day of your injury. So schedule an appointment if you are seeking treatment for your condition and we'll take good care of you: CLICK HERE for Appointments

Neuropathy

Neuropathy is the term used to describe a problem with the nerves, usually the 'peripheral nerves' as opposed to the 'central nervous system'. The term 'neuropathy' covers a wide area and many nerves, but the problem it causes depends on the type of nerves that are affected:

Sensory nerves (the nerves that control sensation) causing cause tingling, pain, numbness, or weakness in the feet and hands, Motor nerves (the nerves that allow power and movement) causing weakness in the feet and hand, and Autonomic nerves (the nerves that control the systems of the body eg. gut, bladder, etc.) causing changes in the heart rate and blood pressure or sweating.

Neuropathy has many causes, and any number of the three nerve types can be affected at any one time: Mononeuropathy refers to a single nerve being affected and Polyneuropathy means several nerves are affected.

We treat Neuropathy using the VeVazz Laser machine. It is a non-invasive treatment that is pain free, doesnt require recovery time, plus is natural, safe, effective, FDA approved, and treatment time is only 7 minutes! CLICK HERE for Appointments

Bunions & Hammertoes

Bunions are due primarily to genetic factors, but can become painful over time due to trauma, ill-fitting shoes and poor foot structure. With bunions, the bone connected to the big toe starts to drift outward pushing the big toe sideways into the other toes which can also lead to painful hammertoes, corns and calluses. If left untreated, bunions can not only become painful, but become progressively worse.

Although wider shoes, padding and custom orthotics may slow down this progression, surgery is the only way to correct the bunion deformity. Bunion surgery is usually performed on an out-patient basis which means patients get to go home on the same day of the surgery. Many of our patients start walking on the operative foot within a few days and can return to work within a short period of time.

Hammertoes occur due to a contracture of the small joints in the toe which causes friction to these joints when wearing shoes. When the top of the toe repeatedly rubs against the shoe a corn develops. Conservative treatment for hammertoes consists of wider shoes, padding and injection therapy. If these conservative measures do not reduce the pain, surgical intervention may be necessary.

So, if you're experiencing bunions, painful hammertoes or corns, schedule an appointment today, so that we can eliminate your pain.

Warts

Foot Warts (Plantar Warts) are a common foot condition that we treat in our practice. If you have one or more growths on the bottom of your foot that may or may not be painful, chances are it's a plantar wart.

Plantar Warts are caused by a virus. You may notice little black dots in the wart. People sometimes think these dots are splinters. They are actually the blood vessels that nourish the wart. You can get viral warts anywhere you walk barefoot, such as the local pool, karate studio, dance studio, locker room or even from a pedicure salon.

There are several treatments for plantar warts; including topical immunotherapy. The type of treatment received depends upon the patient's needs. Plantar warts can spread easily.

If you think you have one or more plantar warts, come in immediately to have them removed before they multiply.

Diabetic Foot Care

Diabetes has become an epidemic in this country. If you have diabetes it is essential that you have your feet evaluated by a podiatrist. Diabetics are prone to poor circulation, have a weakened immune system and impaired nerve function in their feet. Due to poor circulation, diabetic feet are more susceptible to developing sores, and non-healing wounds which may lead to ulcers.

These wounds can also develop into serious infections which can lead to amputations, loss of limbs and even loss of life. With diabetes, you also have a good chance of developing peripheral neuropathy. Symptoms of peripheral neuropathy can be pain, numbness, tingling and burning sensation in your feet.

We recommend that you come in for a comprehensive diabetic foot evaluation. We will use the latest technology to test and assess the circulation to your feet, and determine if you have peripheral neuropathy. Once the evaluation is complete, we will design a treatment plan specifically for you.

If you're a diabetic, come in for a complete evaluation immediately, so that we can provide you with the care you'll need to minimize possible complications.

EUGENE “GENE” PLOTITSA, D.C.
Fungal Nail Laser

Fungus likes to grow in warm, moist places like your shoes. Many patients pick up fungal toenail infections in the gym locker room, from a nail salon, wet shoes or from trauma. Fungus can stay in the nails for many years and can be passed from one person to another.

There are currently three treatment modalities for this condition. They include topical medications, oral medications (which can have some serious side effects), and the newest modality which is laser therapy.

At our practice we use a laser, which focuses a concentrated beam of laser light through the nail to eradicate the fungus living under and in the nail. The procedure is performed right in our office, requires no anesthesia and is painless. Most patients require only three treatments and can once again enjoy wearing open-toed shoes.

If you're tired of looking at those unsightly toenails, please come into our office to determine if you are a candidate for laser therapy: CLICK HERE for Appointments

KIRAN VASWANI, M.D.
Wound Care

Having an open wound increases the chances of infection. If you have a non healing wound on your lower extremity, it is essential that you act to get it healed as quickly as possible to prevent infection and further complications. If you have diabetes, you are especially at risk for complications. The sooner a wound is treated, the greater the patient's chances are of healing.

When you first come to our office, we will use the latest technology to perform a comprehensive neurologic, vascular and orthopedic exam. Once the wounds are healed, patients are regularly followed up to help avoid future problems.

So, if you have a non-healing wound on your foot, ankle or leg especially if you're diabetic, we strongly recommend that you schedule an appointment to see us as soon as possible.

LEAH WOLFE, OTR/L
Ingrown Toenail

An ingrown toenail occurs when a corner of the nail grows into the flesh of the toe, causing redness and swelling, followed by pain and often infection. Ingrown toenails can occur due to improper trimming of the toenail, trauma or genetic factors.

Treatment for ingrown toenails is performed by gently numbing the toe, and then removing the offending corner of the nail. If you have chronic ingrown toenails we can apply a chemical to the nail root to permanently prevent the re-growth of the ingrown portion of the nail.

Patients are typically back into a shoe and can resume their normal activities almost immediately.
